Master Books’ beautiful language arts curriculum, Language Lessons for a Living Education Level 4, helps fourth grade level students master writing strong and descriptive paragraphs. They will learn story elements, the eight parts of speech, letter writing, and much more!

Complete with fun, full-color worksheets and the continued story of Claire and Micah, Level 4 keeps students engaged and excited to learn more!

Language Lessons for a Living Education Level 4 teaches students to recognize types of verbs and verb agreement, plural pronouns, prefixes, contractions, synonyms, root words and more. Continuing with what the student has learned in Level 3, Book 4 will add to their communication skills. They will review and refine lessons from Level 3 in addition to learning these new skills.

Within the course, students will:

  • Master state of being verbs, action verbs, and possessive nouns
  • Review sentences, singular and plural nouns, adjectives and adverbs
  • Identify abbreviations, proper use of punctuation marks, spelling, root words, compound words, and suffixes
  • Create their own dictionary with words learned through the course
  • Learn to create good paragraphs based on structure and comprehension
  • Develop skills in using the dictionary and a thesaurus for spelling and vocabulary- building
  • Explore the Scripture, parts of letter writing, copywork, and more!

Language Lessons for a Living Education is uniquely effective in teaching communication skills and the Gospel. In Level 4 of this award-winning series, each quarter has five stories, two picture studies (one of which is Bible-based), and two poems (one of which is a Psalm). Using the spelling words and the Dictionary Worksheets, students will create their very own dictionary as they move week by week through the material.

A helpful and detailed daily schedule:

  • DAY 1: Focus on a short story, poem, picture study, select Bible verses
  • DAY 2 & 3: Writing topics such as grammar and punctuation
  • DAY 4: Reading from 101 Favorite Stories of the Bible, Scripture copywork and memorization
  • DAY 5: Creating your own dictionary with a focus on spelling and vocabulary

Scope and sequence, a daily course calendar, and additional learning resources including independent reading lists, spelling words, practice sheets and more are included to help your student master basic concepts. Reviews are also incorporated throughout the course to help them understand and apply what they learn.

The only language arts that doesn't make us cry
Review by Christina
I have a child who does not like spelling or writing. Thr curriculum that we used before this would cause tears and massive anounts of frustration. She loves this book, and loves doing the spelling pages that are recommended as a free download to go along with this book. Both of my twins love the stories that go along with the lessons. I've noticed a big difference in their handwriting, as well as spelling, since we started using this language arts curriculum. The lessons are shorter than other curriculum we had used, yet thorough and perfect for our family. They look forward to doing this subject each day.
Great for my child
Review by Raychal
We switched to this language arts when a different curriculum wasn't working for her. This was absolutely the right fit for her. It is a gentle approach with great explanations given for assignments.

My son was struggling with his other curriculum. Found Master Books and it’s been a game changer! He absolutely LOVES the Bible story section each week and I find him reading more than just what is required for the day.
So helpful
Review by Lauren
This is a curriculum that I know my student will accomplish every day and enjoy doing so. It has been fun seeing the growth each year using this series!
Just what I was looking for
Review by Jill
This just the curriculum I needed for my 4th grader to learn the foundations of Language Arts and build on his writing skills. Its short enough to keep his attention yet teaches him the material he needs for his age. I started my 2nd graders in level 2 at the same time and love how they tend to learn the same material, though at different levels, on most lessons and even the stories follow the same children. I'm so glad we decided to switch to this program!
Review by TANA
“I hate paragraphs!” is a common phrase in our house. So he’s not enjoying all the writing, but it’s so much better than the other language arts books we’ve tried/looked at. Whether he thinks he is or not, he’s vastly improving since we’ve started using Master Books. So even though it’s not his favorite, it’s working!
Wonderful for a struggling reader!
Review by Amy
My son struggles with reading but this made it so much easier! Enough review to continually bring back topics without the pages and pages of busy work. We love the stories and have enjoyed following the characters all the way through!
love it!
Review by kari
I absolutely love this language arts curriculum. it is simple and to the point, engaging to the child and easily understandable for the parent to teach. I also love that the first few weeks are a review to further help aid in understanding of language. Well done!
Language lessons are great!
Review by Veronica
We have used language lessons since lvl 2. I love how with each year the concepts are repeated in more depth. I also love the pace and that as my children are getting older they are able to do a lot of the work on their own. I do wish there was a bit more activities with the spelling but we make our own spelling journals and they practice the words daily different ways. Will continue to use, hoping they make levels 7+.
Excellent at Developing Writing
Review by Ginger
This year we have seen our student progress greatly in his writing ability and deepen the content in his written word!
